LCC's Dhiren Patel is this week's Featured Player for his scintillating 90 not out against UNM in just 59 balls. Congratulations, Dhiren!
Dhiren continued his scoring ways in a T20 played at UNM in Albuquerque, New Mexico last weekend. Facing an unfamiliar opponent on an even more unfamiliar Flicx pitch, Dhiren quickly adjusted his game to account for the uneven bounce and sharp seam movement. Taking full advantage of his quick feet and hands, Dhiren repeatedly attacked the bowling in scoring 4 boundaries and 6 massive sixes. Despite losing 3 batting partners in the first session, Dhiren calmly kept the scoreboard ticking with plenty of singles and twos. He finally found a solid partner in Bodhayan who joined him at the crease and showed off his own shot-making. However, Dhiren was unlucky to miss out on his maiden T20 century thanks to Harlan's clever bowling in the last over. Dhiren's innings was instrumental in helping LCC post 167/3 in 20 overs.
Later on, Dhiren helped deny UNM any chance of chasing down the target by bowling economically and taking 1 wicket.
